A very basic model of virus inactivation is exponential decay. You can describe exponential decay with the $N(t) = N_0e^{-\lambda t}$ equation, of if you want to use half-time, then with the $N(t) = N_02^{-t/t_{1/2}}$, where $N$ is the value which reduces by time, $t$ is the time, $\lambda$ is the exponential decay constant and $t_{1/2}$ is the half-life ...

Besides viral infections there are different pathways for cells to take up dsRNA. Inside the cells these dsRNA are processed by Dicer which processes these RNAs into small interfering RNA, which play an important role in the regulation of gene activity. These pathways have mostly been researched in Drosophila and C. elegans, I am indicating where evidence ...

I found this safety sheet in the topic. SECTION IV – STABILITY AND VIABILITY DRUG SUSCEPTIBILITY: Unknown. S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase inhibitors have been found to have complete mortality protection in mice infected with a lethal dose of Ebola virus (30). DRUG RESISTANCE: There are no known antiviral treatments available for human ...

It is not airborne, because if it had be we would have a really big problem. Normal immunocompetent mice are not susceptible to non-adapted filoviruses. There are therefore two strategies available to establish a murine model of filovirus infection: adaptation of the virus to the host or the use of genetically modified mice that are susceptible to ...
